Dreams About Deceased Lovers

Pam from Hammond, Indiana writes:

When I learned of my brother’s illness two years ago, I began dreaming about and having visits from a man I dated back when I was 18, who passed away. In the dreams he comforted me, and we were both so happy again. I knew in the back of my mind that I was 50 years old now, but in the dream, he was still 19. The dreams/visits are always happy. I am very sensitive psychically, and I have seen this man in my home, can smell his shampoo and cologne, and can feel him literally holding me while I sleep. When my brother passed, the dreams and visits continued. Am I losing my mind?

Hello Pam,

I’m very sorry you lost your brother. And you’re certainly not losing your mind by thinking you’re being comforted by your deceased friend. Actually, it sounds like you have a friend in the afterlife who remembers your time together and loves you still. Although the dreams might be just wishful thinking for someone to comfort you, I believe the visitations are real and that you sense his presence. Sometimes when we’re distressed, especially if a death is involved, a loved one from the other side will appear to us, usually through a dream, to let us know we’re not alone and that death does not sever the ties of love.

One thing to consider, though. You indicated you’re a Cancer, a sign known to be strongly connected to the past. It’s important that you stay involved with life through your activities, goals and the people you care about. As you heal from the loss of your brother, the visits from your friend may cease, but know that he’s still connected to you, and that you’ll meet up again someday.

Sweet dreams,
Cortney

    my kids father was killed 8 years ago when i was 3 months pregnant with our baby boy. i’ve been dreaming him for a while the 1st dream i had of him he seems upset at me and told me that i didn’t go check him to make sure he was alright. i’m not sure what he meant by that. i also dreamed him another time telling me to meet him at the local neighborhood pool hall. then mayb one year later on my birthday dream him hugging me and telling me everything was ok that was in 2011. i recently dream him again in this time it seemed so strange cause he kept telling me he wasn’t dead and will take care of me and my kids. scary because i know in reality he’s gone. what could this mean

    My same sex partner of 7 years passed away at the start of nov 2012,

    I keep dreaming of him and it feels so real and comforts me!

    Last night I dreamt that we were together holding hands wish was held so tightly! He told me he loves me and we had a normal conversation about things we would have when he was a alive, he even asked me for a smoke! Is this really my lover spending time with me or is it just my mind?

    HELLO,

    MY NAME IS NANCY AND MY CHILDRENS FATHER PASSED AWAY ABOUT SIX YEARS AGO. SINCE THEN I HAVE HAD ABOUT A HANDFUL OF DREAMS ABOUT HIM OR AT LEAST HES PRESENT IN THE DREAM. WE NEVER REALLY SPEAK ITS MOSTLY AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF ONE ANOTHER AND THE ENCOUNTERS ARE VERY BRIEF. ONE THING I SHOULD STATE IS THAT WE FOUGHT ALOT BEFORE HE DIED AND FOR MOST OF OUR RELATIONSHIP. BEFORE HE DIED I WAS CONVINCED THE MAN HATED ME. WE HAD BEEN TOGETHER FOR ALMOST SEVEN YEARS. WE DONT FIGHT IN THESE DREAMS OR EVEN SPEAK ITS MORE LIKE HEY WHATS UP.
    I DONT KNOW WHAT THESE DREAMS MEAN AND I WISH HE WOULD SAY SOMETHING TO ME, LET ME KNOW WHY HES THERE. IF U CAN HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHY I TEND TO DREAM WITH HIM FROM TIME TO TIME IT WOULD HELP A WHOLE LOT. I HAVE LOST ALOT OF PEOPLE IN MY LIFE TIME AND I NEVER DREAM ABOUT THEM, NOT EVEN MY MOTHER. NEED TO KNOW WHY HIM.

    SINCERLY,
    NANCY

    P.S.
    IM A GEMINI IF IT HELPS.
